PERFORMANCES
"World Dance Competition in Disney was an amazing experience! Our dancers truly enjoyed the rehearsal process and parade down Main Street. Parents, Teachers and Students were all overcome with emotion, chills in fact! It was incredible to see such a display of happy dancers doing what they love in the most magical place on earth. All of the details throughout the trip were very well organized, properly communicated, and professionally executed. We certainly would recommend this to other studio friends and hope to return soon!"

"Our experience at the World Dance competition 2017 was no less than extraordinary. Our families and dancers eagerly awaited the trip the entire 2017 dance season. When the time came to travel to Orlando, our group was so incredibly excited for the opportunities that were prepared for them. From the hotel to rehearsals, parade performance, competition and gala, our time with the World Dance association was amazing! Our staff and families were very impressed with the organization and professionalism the company demonstrated. Our dancers were thrilled with the opportunities they had given them. The parade was magical and the competition was energizing. The gala was a great way to end our trip, as we left with so many unforgettable memories! Thank you to the World Dance Competition, for all of your efforts in making this a fantastic choice for our studio."
